Hi everyone-

I know that there are a lot of people reading this blog that believe in prayer. I’d ask you to pray for Cristian Garza. Cristian is a friend of mine who was just sentenced to consecutive jail terms of 6 and 15 years. So, even if he serves 50% of those sentences, it will be 10+ years before he is a free man again. Cristian has committed his life to Christ and I’d like to ask you to pray he is able to continue serving Christ in prison. While this certainly seems like a long time, those few years of imprisonment, when placed against eternity, amount to nothing. Please pray that God will strengthen Cristian and that Cristian will sense a mission and God’s call on his life while he remains incarcerated. May Cristian remember that he can do all things through Christ who strengthens him.

Also, for those of you in the area. Our monthly Men’s Breakfast is tomorrow morning from 8 am to 10 am at Daystar School. Its located at 1550 South State Street. Come join us for a great breakfast and better discussion.


This is a film you may want to see.  It’s not a Christian film  but it does show something of what it’s like to be out on the streets interrupting violence.  The film shows one year in the life of several Ceasefire violence interrupters, including the challenges, frustrations, and joys of the work. Information on the film can be found at:
